New Missions

The question of what the church looks like in the twenty-first century perplexes many people, including us.

We believe that God has been at work in his church unravelling our past understandings of church and inviting us to imagine what church could be in the twenty-first century for a new generation of people.

We know that we are not in a time of temporary exile from our previous experiences of church, we are in a new era, which we embrace with hope.

We are on a shared journey to discern what the Spirit is up to ahead of us and to join God in those places.

With trust in God and deep humility, we venture into the unknown.

Worship

Southside Uniting Church is committed to moving into God’s missional future. As part of this we will try new approaches to our worship, witness and service. A missional church for the 21st century will respect the tradition of the church whilst it seeks to engage a new generation in with the transforming message of Jesus Christ. For a trial period of three months we are going to experiment with different times and styles of worship.

Our underpinning values for worship

· Christ centred

· Missional

· Inclusive of all people, including ethnicities and ages

· Community building

At Southside we have two styles of worship:

Blended service

Our blended services will have a structured style of worship, including a range of music from ages past to more something more contemporary. Our desire is to engage all worshippers with the life transforming message of Jesus Christ. There will be no separate children’s program. Worship will encompass people of all ages.

Contemporary service

Our contemporary service will have a greater degree of energy, flow and fluidity. Music will be led by a range of instruments and will feature songs from the recent past. Our desire is to engage all worshippers with the life transforming message of Jesus Christ. There will be no separate children’s program. Worship will encompass people of all ages.

You are invited to attend any service, at any of our centres. [Prior to attending, you must obtain a free ticket by clicking here.](https://southsideuc.ucareapp.com/portal/events)Tickets become available nine days before each service.
